Why did you choose Northumbria University?

Northumbria is a great university with a great reputation and is known as one of Britain's best modern universities. It has a superb law school that has produced many barristers who have gone on to work around the world. Northumbria School of Law is the largest in the north of England and is renowned for providing splendid legal education. To be given an opportunity to read law at Northumbria has been an honour.

What is your impression of the Law School community, your fellow law students and the facilities at the School?

The Law School community is exceptionally strong and diverse. Everyone has been very approachable and welcoming since the very beginning. The staff are all supportive and approachable.

The facilities provided at the University are wonderful. It's everything a school can offer. One of the many facilities that caught my eye and drew my attention was the beautiful courtroom.

What are your Law School highlights?

The first would have to be when I was doing second year. I was awarded the honour roll and I must say that it was one of the best moments of my life, knowing that all the hard work had paid off.

Other school highlights were the chance to meet new people with different personalities, unique and diverse in culture. Not only did we come to read law but also we're given this golden opportunity to mix and mingle with people from all over the world.

The bond between lecturers and students is just phenomenal. Although, various students came from countries that English is like a stranger or not their mother tongue, they manage to communicate somehow. The effort shown by both students and lecturers is amazing.
